Memorial Day 2007  

Saturday, May 26, 2007

Last Memorial Day, I linked over to Delftsman, who had up a really great cartoon that catches the essence of people's screwed up priorities this day and age. So, I'll just re-post last year's post as a reminder of WHY we all stay home and barbecue. There is a reason, you know. There is someone being honored.

Memorial Day

Delftsman has said it better than any could.

I regret that loss of meaning. This is supposed to be a day of reflection, a day of honoring those that died in the defense of everything we hold dear; a day to realize that freedom isn't free and that we are blessed that so many brave patriots in the past were willing to pay that ultimate price so that we may feel secure in our land.

Why is it that a foreign-born American has more of a clue than many of those born here? Too many people take this country for granted.

Delfts is always right on the mark.
